    Re: GRUB package failed to install

    I've received this message on a fresh install as well, but it turns out that Ubiquity for some reason isn't mounting the existing EFI partition automatically. I don't know why since the Debian...

    [ubuntu] Re: Why only old Java?

    openjdk-7 is in the universe repository, which isn't directly covered by Canonical. Therefore, security updates come from the community.

    Java itself is fine to use and server-side technologies are still in wide use. It's applets that are insecure.

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    The reality though is that a lot of the contributions to the Linux kernel and a few other large projects are by "corporate contributors", a.k.a paid employees.

    Re: Nasa uses Ubuntu for Curiosity rover!

    It appears to be 12.04. 10.04 had more rounded buttons.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Access denied on SMB share, WD Netcenter

    How is the WD Netcenter set up? I'm a little confused. Is it using SMB or is it using NFS? What authentication are you using on it?

    If it works fine on Windows, then I suspect that that the NAS...

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    This is what I don't understand.

    Every single Ubuntu release has always been criticized for being "corporate-like" or "too buggy". Then, users will say the Ubuntu release they ran 3 years ago was...

    [ubuntu] Re: what a mess

    Why would it go completely wrong? All it does is generate boot entries. Even if your boot loader was messed up, you can reinstall it from a LiveCD.

    In any case, it also looks like the Windows 7...

    That sounds like the bootloader on the USB drive wasn't set up correctly. What utility did you use to write the ISO to the drive?

    [ubuntu] Re: what a mess

    That one command is backwards, It's sudo update-grub, not grub-update.

    apt-get autoremove only removes unusued dependencies. It doesn't remove old kernels. You can remove them, but you'll have to...

  17. [ubuntu] Re: After installation Raring doesn't boot

    Re: Cheapest possible computer uk?

    Why not? You're severely limiting your choices given your budget. More than likely, you'll be able to find a used Core 2 Duo desktop instead of trying to hunt for parts if you look for a used machine.

    For a long time it was that way, but if you haven't tried a computer with an HD 4000 GPU, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. As time moves on, Intel is only going to make those GPUs faster.

    Looks interesting, but doesn't look good for ergonomics. Personally, I would just get one of those Model M style keyboards, which has a spring feedback for the keys.
  23. Re: why I despise Linux -> another weekend lost to a blinking cursor

    UEFI is tricky and I've had issues with other distros getting it to work. If the USB method doesn't work, it's advisable to just boot it from a disc.

    It depends. The main issue in adding 3rd party repositories is that you're trusting that the package maintainer will still keep a sane list of dependencies. Suppose you add two PPAs where the first...
